The Heyokah Project — A Contrary Performance

When: Feb. 17-27 2011

In Lakotah Sioux tradition, a heyokah is a special shaman who possesses, among other talents, an ability to control thunderstorms (way cool). A heyokah also plays a sort of clown, mirroring people so they can see their ailments, then heal by laughing at themselves. Makes more sense than our current health care system, huh? Tonight is the penultimate chance to catch The Heyokah Project, the Manitou Art Theatre's (1367 Pecan St., themat.org) original collaboration with visiting performer Bill Bowers. Playing off the Lakotah legend, local actors share their true stories of laughing through struggle. Tonight's show is at 8, and tomorrow's is at 2; seats are $20. — Matthew Schniper

Price: $10-$20
